Cabi started because we wanted to share the beauty and ease of Japanese home cooking.
We believe that food is a universal language that is the greatest show of love and it can evolve when shared with multiple cultures yet always unique to its own origin. We commit to quality by creating our flavors with specialized partners in Japan who have been perfecting their traditional technique for over 100+ years.
And you know, we’ve heard it a thousand times before: “we really want to cook Japanese food, but what the hell is Mirin? And what does Dashi look like? How many types of miso are there?”. Cabi is here to teach you all about that.
Japanese home cooking and its far-dating recipes have been perceived as out-of-reach and intimidating for someone who didn’t grow up with Japanese culture, while oversimplified products can lack an authenticity and the flavor-complexity you really crave.
So we gave it our go. In our pantry, we start with 3 products that we believe are essential to beginning your Japanese cooking journey – your bridge into a world obscured by unfamiliarity, but with a twist and our own flair. It’s all you need to begin.
Cabi has been carefully developed with a sense of ease and versatility in mind, allowing you to love and incorporate these Japanese flavors into your own cooking, on your own terms, always authentic. We like to say: cooking not required, only if desired. We are here to support all adventures in the kitchen.
It is our hope that in enjoying these products you’ll become acquainted with the flavor profiles that form the basis of many easy and achievable Japanese dishes you’ve probably tried and love.
With love and yuzu,
Eri & Miki
